Wind modeling

Wind modeling is a crucial field for understanding atmospheric phenomena and plays an important role in wind energy and urban comfort.

Our cutting-edge technologies, such as Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and meso-micro-scale coupling, provide a sophisticated numerical approach to simulating wind behavior at multiple scales, enabling detailed analysis of complex airflows.


Accurate computation of wind characteristics

Our numerical approach allows us to model the complex behavior of the wind in detail, enabling us to accurately compute its characteristics. The local topography, with its elevations and contours, has a significant influence on air flows. Our numerical models fully incorporate this data and also account for the presence of obstacles such as vegetation, buildings, or complex structures.

By taking these elements into account, it is possible to accurately capture the spatial variation of the wind, its changes in speed and direction, providing an in-depth understanding of local patterns and crucial information for fields as diverse as urban planning and wind energy development.

Onshore and Offshore Wind Atlases

Identify the best onshore and offshore wind resources with our regional or national wind atlases.

Whether you are a wind farm developer or a local authority, creating a wind atlas provides accurate mapping of wind characteristics such as average wind speed (m/s).

The Wind Atlas is an essential decision support tool to effectively identify wind resources in a region, determine the optimal siting of wind farms, calculate their energy density (W/m²), and convince communities of the choices made.

Onshore and Offshore Wind Energy Potential Analysis

We accurately compute the wind resource at your wind farm site, whether it's onshore, offshore or in an urban environment. We perform a comprehensive assessment of the wind characteristics at the site using advanced technologies such as CFD modeling and meso-micro-scale coupling.

Our ability to model wind extends to all terrain types, even the most complex, including forested areas or mountainous landscapes. By integrating these advanced technologies, we are able to provide an accurate assessment of the Annual Energy Production (AEP) in accordance with IEC 61400 standards.

Comfortable cities and buildings

It is essential to consider the climatic dimension for comfortable indoor and outdoor spaces for users.

Outdoors, the wind can create uncomfortable windy corridors for pedestrians. Indoors, wind serves bioclimatic designs through natural ventilation, reducing energy consumption of habitats and improving their comfort.

Accurate wind modeling allows to identify sources of discomfort, address them, and optimize spaces and constructions.

Our solutions dedicated to urban comfort

Design buildings and urban areas that are comfortable for pedestrians and users by integrating the climatic dimension into your architectural projects.
